That time I turned down a swig of Slash’s JD at a Guns N’ Roses gig


By Steve Newton

Guns N’ Roses were probably the biggest rock band in the world–or was fighting it out with U2 for that title–when this telling photo was snapped backstage in the early ’90s sometime.

The thing I remember most about meeting Slash was when he offered me a guzzle from the bottle of Jack Daniels he was clutching.

Erring on the side of caution, I politely took a pass.

I mean, for all I knew Steven Adler could have gotten some backwash in there.
